Racetrack owner on fatal incident: ‘I can’t see that anybody would’ve done anything intentional like that’
Aug 10, 2014, 12:20 PM EST
The Associated Press late Sunday morning released a quote via Twitter from Chuck Miller, president and race director of Canandaigua Speedway, the site of the tragic incident Saturday night where sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. lost his life, released a statement Sunday morning.
Per AP’s Jenna Fryer, Miller in-part said the following:
“I can’t see that anybody would’ve done anything intentional like that. (Tony Stewart‘s) been great when he’s with us. We’ve had a very good relationship with Tony. We’ve been proud to have him in our field. He’s raced hard. He’s raced clean. He respects what we have to offer. Even what he is, when he comes to our races, he’s there to race. He’s not under contract to some of these tracks, he just shows up.”
The racetrack’s Facebook page appears to have temporarily been shut down. A secondary Facebook account appears to still be operating, but there is no timeline on that page, however.
